Revo Pro 4 and Ashampoo Uninstaller are also ONLY TRIAL programs. You must BUY full version after 30 days !!
Why suggest other programs when they are also only TRIAL

VERY INVASIVE in how it runs & what it also installs!!!!! Cannot really do a portable installation either, as it also installs AppData>IoBit folder with junk in it & when a "portable" installation is run. It also does not clean it out that folder when installing the "portable" installation. "Portable" installation also appears in the list of "Installed" programs, which a portable installation should not.

Also NOT ENOUGH USER CONTROL & CUSTOMIZATION!!!! VERY INVASIVE CONTROL by IOBit. I tweaked the very few custom settings & tried to turn off any of the very few "Auto" settings & yet later up popped a notification that 2 programs needed updating!!! I didn't ask the program to do that. I also did not even register to the Pro version so this was with the Free version.

Unintalled IOBit invasive software & hunted & removed all traces of this very invasive controlling software. I do not recommend installing it as it cannot be installed as a truly portable version & there are too few user controls or customizations.

There are better & less invasive uninstallers out there & which I use.

I have to admit that iOBit seems to develop really good software, my experience, however, is that iOBit Software is very intrusive. For that reason I no longer install anything iOBit. You have to decide what's best for you. As for Uninstaller's I still recommend "Revo Uninstaller"; haven't found another that's better. Feel Free to disagree.

[ JonE ], yes, we have to turn off IObit auto-run, schedule, and resident invasions after running ANY IObit product -- the product is fine, the background nags are unnecessary and prevent me from recommending IObit to novices.

Usually there is a true "Free" competitor on the market. It's always good to read the comments because of the combined knowledge of the community and frequently they suggest true free applications.

[ Michael Sanders ], on the one hand, I agree, giveaways should be uncompromised in a lot of ways, not only lasting forever, but reinstallable, if you want more, buy the next version.

On the other hand, IObit programs work fine in their free versions, their pro versions adding the convenience of some automation and depth, but not necessary.

Check ( chkdsk /f or chkdsk /r, and sfc /scannow ) and clean your computer ( any other tools, such as IObit advanced System Care ) and reboot. reboot in between fixes, make restore points.

Download a fresh copy from IObit directly and try again.

Reinstall your prior version, see if the serial number works, update from within the program.

Let us know what you do that works.

Not being able to control where you install like a thumb drive is a deal breaker.

Juan,
Hi, when it starts installing there is an option called 'Custom Install', so keep your eyes on that. In it you'll have a choice where to install (best to create own Folder beforehand on any Drive to make sure Files don't scatter all over the place, not saying iObit doesn't create a Folder, but being safe won't hurt..), another pre-checked box in Custom Install is to allow desktop icon. Good Luck!

Btw, Looks like I need more than good luck, as every time I try to install today's Offer (never having that problem before with any of iObit's Software!) I cannot even run the Prog pass the splash Message: 'Unofficial IObit Uninstaller will not work any longer'..?? Cannot shift it to place Registration code. That's it. That 'unofficial' Uninstaller comes from here, GOTD d/load page AND IObit homepage both, when trying to install Free version at least! That weird splash has 2 options on the bottom 'Get free', and 'Get PRO', links take me to yet another free Installation or buying Pro. Did it 3 times today with exact result after removing it completely and starting again. Marked the d/loads as Trusted Installer, but no, that didn't help either. Very disappointed!!:(

Peter Blaise,
Hi Peter, thanks for trying to help me in this post-offer period. I don't think You understand my problem: every time I open this newly installed Program (Free, Pro, times and times again!!) I can see main body of it - where normally you would click 'Enter Code', and no, I get it - NOT [ Activate Now ], EXCEPT - all I get is Splash on TOP of BLURRED main black window of it (as in ACROSS everything!) telling me in red, crisp print: 'Unofficial IObit Uninstaller will not work any longer', and then it goes on - It will not only do harm to your PC performance but also leak your privacy..bla bla, 'Get the official IObit Uninstaller now to take your privacy and PC under powerful protection'..My only CHOICES on that Splash are:'Get Free' and Get PRO'. TRIED both countless times now no absolutely NO avail!! IObit Uninstaller in this state CANNOT be closed in any normal way, but using Task Manager.

I have never EVER come across anything like it regarding IObit!!! I have checked with my PC protecting Software that these Installers are allowed, and free of any viruses/malware, that nothing 'IObit' is quarantined a.s.o. ?????? Another words: That's my Problem, not where to insert Reg Code! Do You follow? I have no idea any longer. I am sure IObit is fully aware of this, but will offer no help on their pages! Shame, booo:(( My PC has clean bill of health btw. Uninstalling this Software (because I will not put up with such nonsense!) offers no 'repair it' option either. I think I'm done here. If GOTD and IObit itself are NOT GOOD enough to class this Download/Installation as Official Sites, I don't know WHAT is!!

I agree -- software should check itself and repair itself.

I think some other infection is gaslighting you, not IObit.

Run FREE Malwarebytes AdwCleaner, clean, reboot, then run FREE Malwarebytes, clean, reboot.

Scan whatever installer you have for IObit Uninstaller at VirusTotal and compare with the program directly from IObit scanned at VirusTotal.

Peter Blaise,
Hi again and thank You for time and trouble You took to give me further instructions when You wrote 'I think some other infection is gaslighting you, not IObit'. I think I already said I checked this particular Download (the whole set of them!) like I do with EVERY piece before proceeding with Installation and it was CLEAN, unless SecureAPlus is telling porkies! Since IObit is the ONLY one coming up with this particular nonsense - I cannot spend more time than I already have running it through countless other Programs, free or paid - to determine if my PC is 'infected', or not! If that was the case I would already noticed something is seriously wrong. It would manifest itself, and trust me, I would know.

Meantime, out of sheer curiosity - I did google this matter up to see if that IObit splash screen is known to anyone else, and guess what: it is! The exact one. Someone even posted a 'fix', a patch, but I will not use it. I used legitimate Installation, but if that needs a patch to fix it(??) it's NOT my way of d/loading Software from GOTD, or IObit!

Can you re-find your Google search result where someone else discusses:

-- 'Unofficial IObit Uninstaller will not work any longer'

?
__________

Regardless, you are NOT getting an IObit message, you are getting an invasion or something is breaking.

Confirm by trying the exact same IObit Uninstaller download form IObit directly BUT do it on someone else's computer, check it at VirusTotal, and then install it.

SecureAPlus runs it's own interference and may be part of the problem, crippling IObit installations because ... PUP POTENTIALLY Unwanted Programs.

Try a computer WITHOUT SecureAPlus, and with a fresh download of IObit Uninstaller.

The goal is NOT to get IObit Uninstaller installed.

The goal is to master your own computer to see what has invaded it and taken over control from you, leaving you compromised and unable to do what you want to do.

IObit Uninstaller is just a test vehicle to help you figure out what's invaded your computer or what setting SecureAPlus has in it's defaults that are strangling your ability to use your computer fully.
__________

Again, please re-find and share a link reference to your Google search result where someone else discusses:

-- 'Unofficial IObit Uninstaller will not work any longer'

I could find nothing.

Upload a screenshot somewhere and link to it so we can figure out what's really going on when you see the 'Unofficial IObit Uninstaller will not work any longer' message.

Thanks, and good luck.

Peter Blaise,
Hi Peter, thanks again, goodness, didn't expect further comments from You, are You working for IObit help team? See Your name popping here from time to time, but never really paid attention when You most appear to offer help, sorry. I'm sure if You google up title You posted above You'll find it! (use Google Images for searching, art of googling, lol) I really don't care that much about testing my laptop using this IObit Installation as some 'dipstick' trying to install it on different PC a.s.o. Naah, not worth it. To be honest I don't even know why I tried this Offer couple of day's ago, I too find IObit Software too intrusive, or too 'harsh' when using it's Uninstaller (have different trusted ones I use regularly), but seem to remember from long ago it had one useful (for me anyway) option of removing unwanted Internet extensions, toolbars and 'bits' of that nature. There, I just answered my own question why:) Thanks anyway, btw my old beta-testing days are well over (did a few in past decade), but I try to share concerns like anybody on GOTD when using it, ask questions when I'm stuck, visit Forum, or post a solution if I can and have time. And finally I repeat NONE other than IObit Installation tells me their Software is unofficial..Not even some expensive one (in case I obtained it 'illegally', which I have no habit of), but Free stuff when d/loaded from IObit own Site?? Bonkers!! I bid You good day.

Well, that was a lot of work to say "no thanks".

I finally found an image of your 'Unofficial IObit Uninstaller will not work any longer' on a crack patch website, so that's a dead end.

How did you get a crack patch then? =8^o

And that, folks is called "troubleshooting".

I understand why you got the 'Unofficial IObit Uninstaller will not work any longer' message, and I understand what it would take to resolve the issue.

Though you don't value IObit Uninstaller, you still have an unresolved infection.

If you can cause that message to appear on screen again, you can us free Microsoft SysInternals ProcExp to identify the directory location and file responsible, and you can go from there to eliminate at least one of your infections.

Good luck.

Peter Blaise,
Hi, since I've been notified by e-mail there was yet another entry from You under our 'debate', after reading what You have added to it - I'm here to merely defend myself, please note. Look Peter! It was YOU eagerly asking me to disclose my Google find, since You couldn't find it Yourself, which I didn't have to. I regret now I did, especially seeing Your 'you naughty girl, what crack-patch Websites are you visiting while troubleshooting!??'.. I was just trying to be truthful to the fact I mentioned in one of my earlier posts that I did manage to FIND exact IObit nag-screen, so it's not 'just me', as people often wonder when they are baffled? If anything - it only proves IObit issues such Screens, only I never tried to obtain ANYTHING from IObit that would amount to illegal usage of their Software!!

Moreover, I did not STUDY that Site You consider 'no go area for starters', neither I saw any WARNING not to go there, or even at one's own risk. Just the Site regular Google link took me to - with some entries and images on that page offering a 'patch' for a screen that looked identical to mine. I don't know these people/Site from Adam to know what they're up to for that matter. If 'patch' is the same terminology for 'crack', I was not aware of their lingo! Besides, why would people seek 'cracks' to fix FREE Program?? So my understanding was there must be some 'glitch' in that Installation and that patch is for it. I didn't go for using it, as I mentioned, I could see no point. If You do, and know how to apply it - then go ahead and see for Yourself what's that about and if it works? I'm sure IObit would welcome such investigation!

All known Softwares as we know offer own Patches from time to time as regular updating/upgrading solutions and we all used them I'm sure (Corel, Photoshop a.s.o) because that's normal and legal! As to troubleshooting particular Software - anyone can see for themselves while researching using Google - positions with 'cracks' for this and that, but I'm not some novice not to realize what's that about, or indeed how dodgy it can be, so please don't try to educate me Sir with Your 'no wonder your computer is in a mess and infected', OR to that effect anyway!?? That's not helpful, that's a tad sarcastic and patronizing?

Lastly - How many times here on GOTD I see someone not being able to Install something while I just did easily!
Do I go telling them 'there must be something wrong with your PC, because I had NO PROBLEM with it whatsoever?? Or - your machine must be infected? Is that even polite?

If initially I was grateful You stepped in seeing my post to a User called Juan - now after these back and forth exchanges - this whole situation reminds me of.. meeting a stranger in the street you're trying to help, and another passer-by joins in, happens to be some doctor, and next tells you you're about to die, best if you went promptly to his clinic to do a number of tests..LOL! Please. Hope You can see that if I was desperate to seek advice on 'infected' computer I would use more appropriate occasion for it than IObit Uninstaller Giveaway Day! If You regard this post as my another OVER-lengthy way of saying 'no, thanks', than look above what (on earth) You came up with!.. haha:) Thanks for Your help never the less and kind Regards.

I appreciate that you have no energy to find out any more about whatever when wrong with your attempted IObit Uninstaller installation, and thanks for the sort-of lead to what you saw, which was new to me, and educational.

Sorry I have nothing useful for you regarding help or a fix or info, but hey, it happens.
__________

It's not really possible to use IObit software "illegally" since it's given away freely, and even pro licenses are anonymous, and either work, or don't.
__________

"Patch cracks" are offered by folks for two reasons, ( 1 ) to turn on the pro features, and ( 2 ) to infect gullible folks ... and there are "patch cracks" offered for any program whether they need it or not because of ( 2 ).

Functional "patch cracks" cause a program to skip checking for a license, or convince it that it has a license, or some equivalent, such as copying a DLL from a licensed version for use elsewhere, like on a rebuild machine after a crash -- not all "patch cracks" are bad or intended to skirt appropriate software use.
__________

I often salvage PCs from the trash room in my apartment complex and learn a lot by wasting way more time on them than they will ever be worth, but it's one way I learn, and I often find that folks just gave up troubleshooting what turns out to be a rather simple problem.

And I do wish I understood enough about your IObit Uninstaller misbehavior to be able to duplicate the problem, for any number of reasons, including ( a ) keeping GOTD a go-to place for a helpful community, ( b ) mastering IObit's quirks, and ( c ) knowing more about ( 2 ) above.

But just because I want something does not mean it's available.

No, I was not indicting your integrity, I was speculating, and have seen many folks get infected unawares, but all we can do is speculate what went wrong for you, and speculation doesn't get anybody anywhere.

Thanks for kicking it around.

The FREE version of IObit Uninstaller can batch uninstall, the FREE version of Revo only uninstalls one program at a time.

FREE Revo has more cleaners. IObit expects you to use FREE IObit Advanced System Care or FREE IObit Smart Defrag to clean, because FREE / PRO IObit Uninstaller only searches for orphans, not cache and temp files unrelated to installations.

FREE IObit Uninstaller offers a list of your programs that need update and the PRO will update them all at once, FREE Revo has no updater.

I use them both for each program's strengths.

Yes, I know that. For me it is an unnecessary feature. Most programs, like Winrar, Flash, Java, etc have built in update check as an option already. For those that don't I check for myself every few months. In most cases, it is as simple as: If it still does what I need it to do, why update it.

Install ANY IObit software, and it will clearly show [ Pro ] next to any feature that requires a license, all other features being free forever.

So, install and see if you care about the [ Pro ] features, not just of IObit Uninstall, but ALL Iobit programs ( except IObit Malware Fighter which has no function except with a license ).

Agreed, I often use "auto update" lists as a reminder for me to go and manually update each program from within each program itself, especially Firefox and Opera and any program that has it's own update check.

The endless "update the following list" is often just a reminder for me to go and do it manually.

However, IObit Uninstaller PRO does download and save the installer, and that's a nice resource for the future, and it can automate updating the entire list, and that's nice.

IOBit Uninstaller is a very good software, I have used it for years. But 6 months is a very limited license. I will pass this one, I use the one I already have. It does a very good job and is very easy to use.

All the pro version does is offer to facilitate updating software it finds with direct download and install, instead of sending you to a web page to update software yourself.

Otherwise, this is smarter and faster than prior versions, and the free version is forever free.

Can this program remove orphaned registry entries that are in the registry before it is installed?

Now that's a challenge -- "can this program do something before it is installed?"

No.

Orphaned registry entries are better addressed by ANY registry cleaner ( which 50 % of users here say DON'T USE, they are DANGEROUS !).

I use registry cleaners daily, hence my savvy on which ones are safe and which are dangerous.

Glary and CCleaner in NON-DEEP mode are safe.
__________

When uninstalling something with IObit Uninstaller, it will search the registry to remove RELATED entries that were left behind.

But it doesn't do an general "orphan" search in the registry.

Peter Blaise, __ I stopped using CCleaner a long time ago, after losing confidence in it after some scandal or other, and now only use JV16 Power Tools.

eejaym, absolutely right. Between CCleaner and Bleach Bit, enough necessary registry entries were removed that my Windows no longer functioned. Clean reinstall would not work in System Recovery either. A pro had to do the reinstall for more than 100 USD. Worked just fine ever since.

CCleaner was distributed with a virus when Avast first bought them, then Avast had it phone home even if you turned that off.

Both problems killed sales, so Avast cleaned up the program and it is okay again, no virus, no phone home after you turn off the phone home feature.

I've used iOBit products for more years than I can remember but I got to old to afford them so I'll take the 6 months. Thanks to iOBit, giveawayoftheday.com and our members who not only test these programs but then take the time to tell us their opinions and results. SALUTE!!!

The FREE version of IObit programs are as effective as most folks need, the PRO version only adding some features like automation and depth, but all revert to FREE and still great after the license expires, and new version can be installed FREE anytime without a license.

The only exception is IObit Malware Fighter which I find useless in either the free or pro version.

Gary and Kuka ... Yes, indeed. That's why it's named R E A D M E.txt rather than "Don'tbothertoReadMe.txt".

If I monitor an installation today, will uninstall work after the six months is up?

YEs, all IObit PRO versions work forever, referting to the FREE verion when the license expires, loosing some automation and depth.

So, yes, it will be aware of any monitored installation when you go to uninstall.

You can also update IObit versions anytime, and they will be aware of prior version settings and resources, though the license may not convey and they will be the free version.

The FREE version of IObit programs are still excellent and functional.

( Except IObit Malware Fighter which I find useless in either the free or pro version. )

YD Forums,
No, after the 6 months expires it will become a free version.. No need to uninstall unless you no longer want it.. The free version is just as good as the paid version.

YD Forums,

No Worries

It Will Monitor Every Action During Installation.... Detect Hidden Folders, Registries, Installed Drivers In Windows System Files Etc.

Keeps A Log File Of Whole Process Installation.

Peter Blaise, absolutely true regarding input malware fighter. I have been using advanced system care / iObit programs for years, and I agree.

This is a good program. Too bad it is crippled by a six month limitation. Thank you for the offer but I will pass.

Reply   |   Comment by dadams  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+40)

dadams, Free version is almost identical and you can have updates for as long as they are making the program.

Download and install this and SEE FOR YOURSELF what the PRO version covers compared to the FREE version.

Pro: Facilitated updates to other programs.

Free: manual updates to other programs.

That's it.

The free version is not crippled, it does everything an uninstaller should do, better than most others uninstallers, and is always free, updatable anytime forever, and forever free.

You can also update ANY IObit program versions anytime, and they will be aware of prior version settings and resources, though the license may not convey and they will then be the free version.

The FREE version of IObit programs are still excellent and functional.

( Except IObit Malware Fighter which I find useless in either the free or pro version. )

Peter Blaise,
Not quite the same, if you look at their comparison chart seen in the link below:
https://www.iobit.com/en/advanceduninstallerpro.php

Correct, folks can go to the IObit web site and look up comparisons between their PRO versions and their FREE versions.

The IObit comparison chart claims that the Pro version adds these features:

-- Get rid of bundled programs and plug-ins WHILE uninstall main program
-- SUPPORT removing stubborn programs
-- SUPPORT removing malicious plug-ins
-- AUTO clean leftovers that cannot be deleted by other utilities
-- AUTO 1-click to update all important software
-- Auto Update to the latest version

Where the FREE version would require you to:

-- MANUALLY individually get rid of bundled programs and plug-ins after uninstall main program
-- MANUALLY select stubborn programs
-- MANUALLY removing malicious plug-ins
-- MANUALLY clean leftovers that cannot be deleted by other utilities
-- MANUALLY update each found other software
-- MANUALLY update to the latest version

Pro = automated convenience.
FREE = manual.

The reason to ASK ask here it to get other user's experience regardless of programmer's claims.

As I wrote from my experience:

PRO: Facilitated updates to other programs ( automated convenience )

FREE: manual updates to other programs ( manual ).

Thanks for the opportunity to review and make this thread as complete as possible -- one would think that IObit and GOTD themselves would put that comparison chart between PRO and FREE right here in the discussion thread page.

Well, it gives us something to do then, doesn't it?
